What difficulty do you guys usually like to play on, and why? Personally, I always choose the highest difficulty. Not because I wanna get trophies or whatever, but because it's so satisfying knowing that I can beat the very hardest, without breaking the game, that the devs can give me. However, I personally don't like doing lvl 1 runs, because it feels like artificial difficulty, and the game goes on for way too long. Plus, KH2FM on Critical mode feels like a COMPLETELY different game from Proud mode in vanilla KH2, in the sense that each boss battle is actually challenging, magic becomes necessary at some points, and it makes you a master of the game's mechanics.
